Kimberlé Crenshaw’s work on intersectionality provides a framework for understanding how social dynamics such as gender and race bias create interlocking systems of discrimination. The term “intersectionality” has become more popular, yet often our understanding of it remains on the surface and fails to amplify the voices that Crenshaw desired people to hear.
The goal of this event is to engage the campus community in the research and scholarship of three phenomenal professors:
- Natalie Cisneros, Ph.D. | Seattle University
- Ashleigh Shelby-Rosette, Ph.D. | Duke University
- Ruchika Tulshyan, MS | Seattle University
The panel will be moderated by Holly Slay Ferraro, Ph.D., Seattle University’s Wismer Professor for Gender and Diversity.
Together, we will explore the history of intersectionality and research from various disciplines exploring how race and gender influence leadership within organizations.
This event is a partnership of the Wismer Professor for Gender and Diversity, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion, and the Global African Studies Program.
